Let me make something clear about this blog. This is a blog of IDEAS on how BW can better improve their lives. This AINT a blog about who is right, me telling you how you should think and act and that my opinions are the holy grail of truth.
And I expect the same from commenters here. To be RESPECTFUL that others aren’t always at the same level of enlightenment that you are, and may possibly not see your way as the ONLY way.
If we all had the ANSWERS and it was easy to figure this all out, BW would be running the world right now. And well, BW aint running the world. So that means WE DON’T have all the answers. Every person here who participates on THIS BLOG is learning, growing and offering their own VIEWS and O-P-I-N-I-O-N-S on how we can get there.
I’m pretty much gonna assume the BW who participate on this blog all have the ultimate same goal of wanting the BEST for ALL BW. We aint all going to have the PERFECT ANSWERS on how BW can get there, but nonetheless, if you are a participant on this blog then it’s because YOU WANT THE BEST FOR BW and want to offer your own VIEWS and O-P-I-N-I-O-N-S on how BW can succeed in doing so.
We can agree to disagree. We can debate. We can offer new ways of seeing things.
But what we WILL NOT DO HERE AT *NEEEEEEEEECYS* NEST is bludgeon each other over the heads with CONDESCENDING holier than thou attitudes, I’m right and you’re wrong talk.
THAT will not happen here.
This blogs goal is to help offer ways I feel BW can improve their lives. And anything I say is within that context. Unless I am afflicted with Dr. Jeckl , Mr. Hyde disease (which last I checked I wasn’t) that’s pretty much all this blog is about – BW BETTERING THEMSELVES AND GETTING THE BEST LIVES THEY CAN.
I say that to say – I AINT THE DAMN ENEMY! So anything I say that you are confused about, UNDERSTAND it’s ALWAYS coming from a place of support, passion and love for seeing BW in the world do better and get the best life has to offer.
I may not always articulate it in the best of ways, but understand that is the blogs purpose, and THIUS my purpose.
I may not be at the same level of enlightenment some others are, or rather I may simply have a different POV on how I see things.
So. I am gonna make this real easy for everyone.
I am stepping away from the term BWE (Black women Empowerment) in terms of my goals, mission and this blog. Neecy’s Nest MOVING FORWARD is a blog and safe place for Black women to converse about how we can progress as a group.
This way, anything I do or say moving forward, is not under the TITLE, BANNER of Black woman empowerment. It will simply be MY OWN THOUGHTS, IDEAS AND POV on the matter.
I appreciate the knowledge and support and varying degrees the discussions have to offer.
But I will not tolerate condensing attitudes, holier than thou and I’m right and you are wrong. NOPE!
I realize that some people may leave. I’m okay with that. For those that stay, I want this to be a nice, safe and fun place to visit and to EXPLORE ideas on how BW can do better in life.
I do not claim to be the GURU on BW or anything for that matter. And I will not be pushed in a corner on my own blog because people are determined to make me see their way or the highway.
That is all……
